My name is Ramzi, writer and founder of Storiad. Storiad is a networked marketplace dedicated to the art and business of writing. Storiad’s goal is to provide writers with intuitive technology to help them better: 1) connect & collaborate with one another; 2) reach a wider readership base by making it easy to disseminate & market their written work; and 3) connect with publishers, editors, & film producers active in the written media acquisition market.
The idea for Storiad originated with a conversation with my wife, Jennifer, about the business of writing. At some point during the conversation, someone said: “Too bad there isn’t a LinkedIn just for writers.” This got us to talking about how to use professional online networks to connect with other writers, publishers, and audiences. After much discussion on what this “LinkedIn for writers” would look like, the only question remaining was: “why not build one?”
Why not, indeed! So with coordination, planning, trial & error, some luck, long days, and (of course) a great team, Storiad was built and launched in 2011. Now writers have a unique place to congregate, connect, market and sell. With Storiad, your story’s out there.
